A cycling advocate had the county executive and much of the room laughing during his testimony. Bill Kelly did get to the point though, he said he has been testifying since 2007 to improve cyclist safety in the county, but nothing has been done.
"The bicycle master plan has been on your desk for two years," said Kelly, "and nothing has been done."
He asked Ulman to put $250,000 in the budget to begin implementing the plan that would add bike lanes and signage around the county.
"Please get that done," said Kelly, "we have virtually no bike lanes in Howard County."
"You made me smile," responded Ulman. "You're going to get some money in the budget."
